This class was tough.
This class is not an expected class on culture. In the description it says about the discussion of food and music but that is not what was discussed in class. Lots of readings.
I loved talking about the movies that came out of Italy throughout WWI and post-Mussolini. Italian movies were not made to purely entertain; these movies made statements and made the audience feel from all different perspectives and characters. Movies were images of real life and new realism.

Advice for students:
Manage readings in a timely fashion. Its easy to get behind on the readings and it will be important to remember something from each reading for the final and midterm for the class.
